Picnics come in all shapes and sizes. They can be spontaneous or elaborately planned. Spread one out on a blanket at the end of a hike or on a table in the city park. Or maybe just sit on your front porch steps.

Wherever your picnic adventure takes you, it should always involve your favorite people and a basket.

Dresden & Company is completely in the picnic spirit in May with a Red, White and Blue version of our Company Picnic Basket to go along with our regular Sandstone and Ash Gray options.

Our festive Red, White and Blue Company Picnic Basket will have you perfectly set for National Picnic Month in July plus all of your summer celebrations — Fourth of July, family reunions and so much more.  You’ll be so glad you planned ahead and ordered it in May.

The Red, White and Blue version is part of our American Summer collection with a focus on front porches, entertaining, celebrations and fun. To make the celebrating even better, we have a host bundle for the picnic basket set with an amazing savings opportunity. Don’t forget to ask your D&Co. Pro for details.

Picnics have been happening for decades. The tradition traces its roots to France and has evolved over time. Entrepreneurs are finding success these days in putting together picnics for customers.

Start with our Company Picnic Basket for your DIY version. The basket is 19.25 inches long, 13.5 inches wide and 11.25 inches high, so you have plenty of room to work with.

Deciding what to put in your picnic basket doesn’t have to be complicated. You can pack sandwiches, fruit, chips, cheese and crackers, and dessert. Or buns and condiments for the burgers and hot dogs that someone else is bringing to the party. You can use the basket mainly for paper plates, napkins, utensils and cups.

Take your Company Picnic Basket on a road trip. Pull it out for those weekend softball tournaments or the return of football tailgating. Keep it stocked for impromptu getaways.

When this basket isn’t on the go, it still can work as a gift or around the house.

Add a couple of wine glasses, a bottle of wine or champagne and our American Potter’s Collection Charcuterie Plate for a wonderful wedding gift that will be cherished for years. Include a note to remind the couple to always take time to celebrate.

Keep your next quilt project in the basket or make it a center for game or puzzle night. Store your seasonal napkins in the basket.

Every home should have a picnic basket. They are memory makers and the ideas are endless to plan that next outing.
